The Division of Neighborhood Preservation (DNP) conducts site assessments of thousands of buildings each year through four borough offices to determine whether they are at risk, develop individual treatment plans for the buildings, and coordinate the implementation of the treatment plans, DNPs activities encourage owners to pay their taxes, refer owners to education and support programs including anti-abandonment training and provide assistance with rehabilitation loan financing , refer buildings for targeted code enforcement when necessary, and review distressed properties for exclusion from Department of Finance tax lien sales. DNP also coordinates several stages of the third party transfer process to convey distressed tax delinquent buildings to new responsible owners using an inremforeclosure mechanism. Finally, DNP oversees the work of Neighborhood Preservation Consultants who extend DNPs reach into communities throughout New York City by providing a variety of housing services.
